THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers

Daniel Can't Get What He Wants

Episode 211
Title Daniel Can't Ride Trolley
Daniel Can't Get What He Wants
Air Date June 22, 2015

Daniel Tiger and his Dad are going grocery shopping at the Neighborhood market where Prince Tuesday is hard at work. Inside the market, Daniel places a package of cookies in the cart and becomes frustrated when his dad puts them back on the shelf. Dad Tiger encourages Daniel to stomp three times in order to alleviate his anger.

Dad Tiger gives Daniel clues about what is on their shopping list and it's up to Daniel to find the correct items in the store. Daniel make-belives that the fruits and vegetables in the store come to life and play in the market.

In the check-out line, Daniel and his dad find Miss Elaina and her dad who they invite to dinner. Miss Elaina is upset when she is told that they already have plans for dinner. Daniel tells Miss Elaina to stomp three times to help herself feel better. While they wait in line, Daniel and Miss Elaina pretend to have a silly dinner together -- purple potato pineapple soup and a peanut butter and pickle sandwich!
